Good thing you took the thing back.

The guy at Wal-Mart told me their floor devices get terrible treatment. He showed me a keyboard with keys taken off it. Maybe some guy from Clinton's time came to good old Sanford, NC and took a couple of keys before old George W could come buy and try it out, hahahaha.

Paying $50 isn't bad. The Laptop I bought was $699.99, but because I couldn't use the chat feature online, I had a friend to go online to see if she could get Best Buy to do a price match, and Best Buy did for $100 in which brought down the price to $500.99, but I still say that is to much money to pay for something out of the box, or at least for me it is. I wasn't even told this Laptop was out of the box though. I didn't even know this until I got an email from them thanking me for shopping at Best Buy Outlet, but I wasn't shopping at an outlet store. Because it was a out of the box Laptop, that could very well answer my question is why I couldn't keep Narrator turned on long enough to set up my new Laptop. I guess is like the saying, everything happens for a reason because if I did set up my Laptop, I probably wouldn't have ever known I didn't buy a new Laptop, but instead I bought something that was out of the box, in which means that could be for several different reasons why it was out of the box. Best Buy does have a trade in Laptop program, and they can't guarantee me this was not a trade in, or just something that was on the floor for anyone who wanted to just play around with it.

Jim had a refurbished Motorola Android phone, white, by the way. The thing just worked, never gave him a problem, but he closed his account, decided he didn't use a cell phone enough to justify paying for it. We paid $50 for the phone.

Open box doesn't mean someone had the laptop for a year. Normally it means someone got it and returned it. I really really hope you find what you are looking for. I have a dell refurbished laptop and it runs great so I have no problem with buying refurbished

Hi Monte,
The only difference between the Intel and the AMD is $100 so far as I
can see. But, like you say, if the keys are right, and I plan on
using it for as long as I can, I might as well pay the extra! Smile!
So, I think I will go to Best Buy tomorrow, and cancel the Asus, and feel the other ones there.
So now, if I do buy a different one, I might have to try and set it
up myself, and this means I will have to deal with Narrator once
again, as the Geeks are so busy people need to schedule an appointment
at least a few days in advance, but who knows, maybe they just might
set it up for me, just to get rid of me once in for all! LOL! If
not, I might have to schedule an appointment just so I can finally get up and running!

Thank you for all this.

Hi Janet,

If I were buying a new laptop or desktop, I would not care if the
processor was intel or a m d, if they were of equal speed and price.
It’s really just a brand.
If it costs a few dollars more, get the one that feels right for your
fingers and hands;; you’ll be felling that keyboard for many hundreds
of hours!

Hi Juan,
I did go in to the Best Buy store, and I felt the keys on the Asus,
and I did like that as it also had a NumPad. I just didn’t know it
was what Best Buy calls out of the box, as the salesmen never told me
that. I also seen a HP Laptop I liked, and I also seen a Dell Laptop
I liked, but I now don’t know if all those Laptops are out of the box,
meaning someone could have brought it back to the store as a trade in
after they might have had it for several months or even a year.
Although, as I am searching online, I have noticed the Asus Laptops
now have the Intell processor instead of the AMD Risen like the one I bought. So, I don’t really know what all that means.
Can you tell me what kind of keyboard you have with those keys, as
that sounds like something I would like as well, or is it the Lenovo
one you currently have? I had a Lenovo a few weeks ago, and the
problem I had with the keys on the keyboard, was the keys would stick
down in the board when I pressed them. The keys were to large for my
fingers, and they were to many different shapes, meaning some of them were long, some of them were short.

Thank you for all this.

A great method of finding the right laptop for you is to go into a
computer shop and have some hands on with the laptop. I personally do
not like the crammed keyboards so I went in and found one that has
great spacing. I also wanted one with a number pad and this one had
it. I also would stay with any of the intel core I5 computers or AMD
Ryzen 5 and up for processors. 8 GB Ram and SSD of 250 GB or higher.
Lenovo is my computer manufacture of choice right now but that doesn’t
mean there isn’t other good computers in the dell, hp, lineups.

Thank you for this. I won’t be doing any gaming or video though. I
want a Laptop basically for using email, basic editing, etc. So I
know what I want, but trying to find it is another thing. LOL!

Hi these are like model names, think pad and ideapad from Linovo as
far as I know and vivobook from Asus.
They are like series, and you can find plenty of models in that
series, just as for example, iPad pro 2018, 2020 etc.
Naturally 2020 model will have more updated specs such as processor
or ram etc.
Think pad for example 14inch laptop with intel processer and several
models coming either i5 or i7 and all of them U which means low energy
So all of them laptop just different companies and different models.
You have others similar to these, dell xps, hp specter etc.
To know which one you should pick, first decide for what you are
getting the device for, if heavy gaming or video editing etc, these
are not so good, but for productivity and portability, these are perfect.
And laptops which are for gaming and more than 14-15 inch will be not
so great with portability hence they will be quite heavy.

Good luck.

Hi everyone,
Can someone please explain to me the difference between a Laptop
ThinkPad or an IdeaPad or a Vivobook Laptop, as opposed to a computer
Laptop? I am doing some searching on line about the Laptop Vivobook I
recently bought, as it is showing this is not a new Laptop, and I
didn't know that as the salesmen at Best Buy didn't tell me that. So
I am seeing sales for computer Laptops and ThinkPad Laptops, IdeaPad
Laptops, Vivobook Laptops, but then I see different prices for computer Laptops.

Thank you all for any help in this.

Peace Be With You.
